Christopher Meierotto


Since 2010, I have been supporting English language learners to achieve their linguistic goals. My passion for teaching language stems from my own experience as an international student in Germany and as a foreign language learner. I have taught English and coordinated language programs in South Korea, Colorado, Oregon, California, and now here in Saint Louis, MO. I began working with international students in higher education in 2015 and have taught writing and oral communication courses at the University of Oregon, the University of California, Berkeley, and WashU. Here, I work with students in the English Language Programs in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, as well as the Engineering Communications Center in the McKelvey School of Engineering, and the Intensive Legal English Program in the Law School. 

I come from a foreign language education and TESOL background. I hold a MA in applied linguistics with a language teaching specialization. My teaching interests lie in teaching writing, pragmatics, and academic listening. I specialize in language assessment. In my courses, I incorporate experiential project-based learning assignments in my design to maximize student learning, engagement, and acculturation to WashU’s academic community. In addition to my teaching background, I also examine for a major global English language proficiency test and volunteer as a proposal reader for TESOL international conferences. I’m looking forward to working with you!
